The Goe, Martu, Wisseh and Doe families regret to announce the passing of their beloved mother, grand-mother, great-grand-mother, sister, aunt, and cousin the late Cecelia Dorkin Pursehdee Goe. She was 78 years old. This sad event occurred on Wednesday, August 4, 2010 at the John F. Kennedy Memorial Hospital in Monrovia, Liberia.

Momma, as she was affectionately called, lived her life with joy and happiness and shared these gifts with all around her including families and friends. She was a devoted Catholic and a long-time parishioner of the Sacred Heart Cathedral, where she was an active member of the Catholic Women Organization (CWO), St. Theresa Tribal Choir and the Legion of Mary. Momma will be dearly missed. However, we are consoled by the fact that she now rest in perpetual peace with our Lord and Saviour.
